New Fuhais: Taamra's Cliff

20 bolted so far, all first clips are high.

Fuhais is the closest, and possibly the most popular of the crags near Amman. Most of these climbs are short with a few hard moves, making it a great place to practice and the perfect place for even just a half day or short after work session. There are a decent variety of levels, from 4+ to 7b. Also, after some cleaning of the surrounding area there is great potential for bouldering.

Directions:

Drive down to Fuhais village from Amman (Bachaloria School road) when reaching the big roundabout take a right.

Then take the first left onto this street:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then first right:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Proceed down the valley and take the first left onto the small side road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drive for approx. 1.5 km and the cliff will be in front of you, around 15m high maximum and 300m line of a solid lime stone cliff.
